Robots, Cyborgs, & Naturals Play Baseball

Playing Baseball Highlights 2045 is like watching TV highlights of early 21st century baseball games, with the game play being full of them with no outs or innings bogging down this play-by-play simulation.


Baseball Highlights 2045 is a quick and interactive game where two players build their teams as they play, combining both strategy (building your team) and tacticts (playing the game) without any downtime. 


During each "mini game", each player alternates playing six cards to simulate a full game's highlights. The mini game includes defensive and offensive actions, and your single card may included elements of both.

  • Do you try to thwart your opponent's pending hits?
  • Put up a strong offensive action of your own?
  • Or do you use your better players to do both?

After each mini game, players buy new free agents to improve their rosters, and the team who wins the most mini-games in the series is the champ.

What They're Saying About Baseball Highlights 2045


I have never had more fun with a game right out of the box than I have with BH2045. The artwork is extremely well done and helps set the mood. I have played three two-player games and three solo outings and found each to be equally satisfying. I am not even sure that peanuts and cracker jacks could improve upon this.   ~Rick Taverbaugh, The Herald Bulletin


I really think Mike Fitzgerald is a brilliant card game designer. You don't have to be a sports enthusast to enjoy this one, and the team and Eagle-Gryphon Games did a great job on the artwork. Really can't wait to get a copy.   ~Kevin Burkhardsmeier


Robots. Cyborgs. Light deckbuilding. Quick pick up and play. And you can even understand it if you don't like or know baseball! It's an amazing game.   ~Chris Leder


Waaaah!   ~Tom Vasel
